Child Language Lab

Welcome to the Child Language Lab! We're so glad you're here. 

We are a research lab in the Linguistics Department at the University of Pennsylvania. We study how children learn languages. We’re especially interested in why children seem to be better at language learning than adults are. We want to find out whether there is something different about the way children learn or the way their brains are organized that makes language learning come naturally to them.
